Seven U.S. Senate Democrats are urging President Joe Biden to do more to promote abortions by creating a new Office of Sexual and Reproductive Health and Wellbeing.
In a letter Tuesday led by U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, the lawmakers insisted that Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris make abortions an “early priority” in their administration, The News-Press reports.
“We are deeply appreciative of and encouraged by your administration’s commitment to advancing and securing reproductive rights —including the right to access contraception and abortion — as evidenced by your early executive actions,” they wrote. “We ask now that you build upon these efforts and institutionalize a reproductive justice policy framework.”
They envisioned an office that would advocate for the “human right to maintain personal bodily autonomy, have children, not have children, and parent the children we have” in the United States and abroad.
This so-called human right that they are referring to actually destroys human rights – and children’s lives. Abortions eliminate the most basic, fundamental human right of all: the right to life. In the U.S., nearly 1 million unborn babies, each unique, living human beings, are killed in abortions each year. Globally, the estimate is about 50 million.

Yet, somehow that incomprehensible number, the massive amount of violent deaths of innocent children, is not enough.
Warren, U.S. Sens. Cory Booker of New Jersey, Kirsten Gillibrand of New York, Ed Markey of Massachusetts, Jeff Merkley of Oregon, Tammy Duckworth of Illinois and Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut believe Biden and Harris need to do more to make abortions a priority.
Creating a “reproductive health” office “would elevate issues of reproductive justice and ensure a permanent infrastructure to develop a federal strategy for promoting equitable sexual and reproductive health and wellbeing through a human rights, gender and racial equity lens,” they wrote.
It also would allow federal departments and agencies to “better coordinate” their actions to push abortions in “domestic and foreign policy,” the senators continued.
Biden already has made abortions a priority by choosing some of the most radical pro-abortion politicians to help lead his administration. These include Harris and Xavier Becerra, the California attorney general who is trying to force nuns to pay for abortions and put pro-lifers in jail for exposing Planned Parenthood’s aborted baby body parts trade.
Biden also rescinded President Donald Trump’s expanded Mexico City Policy, which prohibited taxpayer funding to international groups like the International Planned Parenthood Federation, which aborts unborn babies across the world and lobbies pro-life countries to legalize abortions.
Under Trump, Planned Parenthood’s international arm was defunded of about $100 million and the British-based abortion chain MSI Reproductive Choices lost about $73 million in U.S. tax dollars.
These two groups alone abort millions of unborn babies every year. Both abortion groups also have faced numerous scandals, including allegations of forced abortions, botched abortions that killed mothers as well as their unborn babies, sales of aborted baby body parts and failures to report sexual abuse of minors.
Biden also is pushing lawmakers to pass the deceptively-named Equality Act, which could force medical workers to abort unborn babies and force taxpayers to pay for them.
